BlackBerry Curve 3G (9300) and Motorola Flipout to be launched by Rogers with new unlimited plans
The Student plans start from $40 per month and include: unlimited My4 local calling, unlimited texting, unlimited BlackBerry Messenger, unlimited Picture and Video Messaging, Unlimited Social Networking (Facebook, Twitter, MySpace), and unlimited talk (evenings and weekends only).
As for the two upcoming smartphones: the Motorola FlipOut will apparently cost $29 with a 3-yr contract agreement, while the BlackBerry Curve 3G could be priced similarly.
The Moto FlipOut features Android 2.1, a 2.8 inch QVGA display, full QWERTY keyboard, GPS, Wi-Fi, and a 3MP camera.
The BlackBerry Curve 9300 will come with 3G and Wi-Fi – the rest of the features probably being similar to the ones of the older Curve smartphones (although the new model may run BlackBerry OS 6 – assuming this isn’t just for touchscreen devices).
